My birthday weekend!


So Monday was my actual birthday but I celebrated on the weekend with some close family friends! Saturday I went to dinner with one of my good friends I’ve made in tokyo so far, Sho. Afterwards we went bar hopping, where I proceeded to turn up off of life. I swear I was sober as a button and the only thing in that glass was ginger ale. I swore off drinking (except for a birthday glass of wine) because of the excess of alcohol I consumed in Thailand. This weekend I’m going to start my own original detox to get rid of the toxins I’ve acquired this month through poor food choices and drinking too much. Anyway I had a nice sober time at one of my favorite bars, Gaspanic. This place has a club feel and you can dance and not feel awkward, unlike most bars in Tokyo. I tried to create a #lewk but the lighting doesn’t do my outfit justice, in my opinion.
On Sunday I celebrated with my Japanese family, the Okamotos. They are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and they always welcome me into their home with open arms. They are friends of my father and since moving to Tokyo, they’ve made my transition to life here so much more comfortable. They took me to a nice Italian restaurant, where we celebrated with an abundance of pizza, pasta, chicken, beef and much more. I had a great time and am so thankful to them for their lovely gifts and thoughtfulness!

Check out some pictures from my amazing weekend below!

Ciao! 🎂🍹

My looks from Phuket 

So hey guys I just recently got back from my vacation in Phuket 🇹🇭! It was awesome and much needed. Along the way I met some really nice people, tried new things and tried to look as bomb as I could without screaming “tourist” with my fits. I don’t usually invest in summer clothing because it’s just not my season for fashion and so the annual H&M 70% sale was a godsend. I bought so many tips and shorts at amazing prices like Â¥500 yen a piece! These are some pictures of what I wore during my six days in Thailand!

ASOS black jeans, H&M tank, clout googles
H&M top, skirt and earrings
Swimsuit from Forever 21, sunglasses are Calvin Klein
Shorts: American Apparel, Top: Zara

Birthday Goodies Haul

So yesterday was my 23rd birthday! I celebrated all weekend but on my actual birthday (which is on a Monday) I was in what I like to call “blissful retail solitude” in the hip neighborhood of Shimokita, where I picked up some birthday presents for myself. I have pictures for you to see what I picked up!

The perfect white shirt. The folded picture doesn’t do it justice. Can’t wait to reveal this Issey Miyake masterpiece in an OOTD post coming at ya soon 👀
I saw this in a vintage store in Shimokita and didn’t think twice. This was meant to be mine and I’m saving it to wear in the fall 👻
This sterling silver piece was so gorgeous I had to purchase it even though I usually don’t like spending more than Â¥500 on a piece of jewelry. Maybe this will inspire me to be a rich bitch and invest in more expensive jewelry!
My first YSL purchase! *insert Young Thug ad lib* this vintage clutch will go really well with an all white outfit and cost only ¥5000!

Gorgeous see through vintage shirt perfect for this hot Japanese sun ☀️

Separate post coming on my weekend and what I wore!

OOTD: Flower Grrrl

I spent my weekend relaxing and preparing to travel for the next 12 days of my life. This weekend, Ill be going to Yamanashi Prefecture to be a camp counselor for my school! Ill be there for four days living in the widerness with 7-12 year olds so wish me luck. The next day I’ll be catching a flight to Phuket for my Obon week vacation! I’m still having a hard time narrowing down which clothes to take but I’ll make sure to do as many OOTD posts as I can. I did a quick OOTD in my apartment with flowers and darkness being my inspiration. Check out the pictures below!

HEY BABY!!! :* 

OOTD: Pretty in Pink 

Today was a good day. Good outfit, good movie, good company, good laughs, everything was just peachy 🍑! I’ve been dying to wear this shirt I got on sale at a Zara in Shibuya, but it was thoroughly annoying when the top ruffle kept blowing in the wind and exposing my goodies to the streets of Shinjuku. I had some help from Erwan to keep my shirt down and he took some great pics of me. Check them out below! 

PS: I looove wearing pink now, I never knew how good I could look in it! Now on the lookout for different shades 🎀. 

Wearing:

Top: Zara

Skirt: thrift

Boots: ASOS

Earrings: ASOS

Purse: Burberry

Night Aquarium 

Last Sunday I attended the annual Night Aquarium held in Nihonbashi. It was a great experience to see a cross between art and marine life and I made sure to take lots of pictures! This event runs through September I believe with some special nights featuring a DJ and drink bar (I went on a Sunday and there was no DJ unfortunately ☹️). Check out the pictures I took below!

My Depop Shop

As a serial impulsive shopper, I buy many garments that I simply never have worn or will never have any use for. I’ve been trying to stop this type of behavior because 1) Tokyo is expensive and 2) I’m trying to downsize my closet. I decided to create Depop shop (username is plaitwoman) with some items that I have no use for or that I don’t wear. I also posted these items on Facebook for sale groups located in the Tokyo region for more exposure. I plan on posting these items on eBay as well, but if you’re interested in purchasing anything feel free to email me at uzochi_okoronkwo@yahoo.com. Check out some of the items in my closet below!
